Background

Founded in 1985 by seven ministers, the Bay Area Pregnancy Center was originally established to assist and support women of unplanned pregnancies. As much greater needs beyond the pregnancy became apparent, our role expanded to aid the existing family in developing sustainable life skills. Today, we have three (4) locations in Clearwater, High Point, St.Pete & Lifeport that serve over 2,000 clients including mothers, fathers, children and grandparents.

We have partnered with Calvary Church and currently have a 4th location, which serves as our educational facility. We have named this location ”lifeport” because it is a double-wide portable that will eventually house our sonogram program. It is located on the property of Calvary Church, Clearwater. Ellie Smith, RN and a faith- community nurse, hosts our client educational classes: You and Your Pregnancy, Labor and Delivery, Infant Care, and Parenting classes.

Programs:



Earn & Learn

This fun and interactive program encourages client participation by offering Baby Bucks for the completion of parenting classes, lessons, and videos. Clients may use the money they have earned to purchase items from “The Nesting Place.” They may shop for bottles, diapers, formula, toys, books, and maternity clothes, clothes for children, as well as bassinettes, strollers, and cribs.

GPS - Grow, Prepare, Succeed

We have added a new program that addresses several major issues that our clients often face. These include: Preparing for new baby, organizational skills, finances, and travelling with their new baby. This is a group class that meets for one (1) hour for three consecutive weeks. Upon completion participant is treated to lunch and a surprise gift providing they have attended all three classes, have not been tardy, and actively participated.

R & R (Remember & Release)

Although we promote alternatives to abortion, this group works through the healing process without judgment to those who have experienced abortion. We are passionate about helping hurting women through this journey. Caring and loving peer counselors guide women through love, positive attitude, actions, and scripture, all with a comforting and accepting heart. (James 5:16)
